The mail will be transferred to him but may take a little while just like when we move and our mail is forwarded... The books should also transfer but once again may take awhile.... You could call the mail room at the facility he was at and ask about the books to make sure they'll transfer them. I'm willing to bet they will but I'd probably call to make sure if it were me...

I don't have any experience with the forwarding of books, but the mail follows right along. In my experience it's only taken a few days to catch up with him. His most recent move a few months ago only took 4 days to get his mail from the other facility. I've heard horror stories where it takes weeks and weeks, but that has NEVER been my experience. Did you by chance type them out on your computer? A couple of times I just printed them again and sent them out to the new facility. Good Luck! I know it sucks when things don't roll smooth!

If he is getting any magazines you should call the company and give them the new address.

Just dial main number.....517-780-6000 and the mailroom is ext.# 5838. I spoke to Sandy-very nice! I always keep detailed notes on all the facilities and numbers and people i speak with, etc.......Never know when it will come in handy. I remember the days of handwriting page after page! Ouch!!! What i have done when i run out of ink is type them out on my computer, save it to my USB "thingy" and print them out at the library. Only costs .05 cents a sheet and i like to have a copy of all i send. Just a suggestion. Good luck.
